SAN DIEGO- The San Diego Zoo is debuting their newest addition today: a giant panda cub named Xiao Liwu (Shoaw Lee-Woo).

Until today, the 5-month-old has only been seen online, through the zoo's panda-cam. The cub broke the mold and walked out ahead of his mother, showing off for the cameras.

The giant pandas at the zoo are on loan from the Chinese government.

Xiao Liwu translates to "little gift."
